Fake news propagators are active in Karnataka following the  hung assembly results. Boomlive reports that posts like this one on Twitter are fake news, using a video dating back to attacks on churches in Karnataka in 2008,  to claim that BJP cadres in Mangalore had just attacked a church to "to install bhagwa and bjp flags and celebrate victory of a BJP majority".  It was posted by a Mohammed Mohsin who Boomlive claims appears to be a Congress supporter.
